    Thanks for replying to my issue. I need private forums for different levels of my organizations leadership and projects. I had found a terrific out of the box website I loved, but I cannot afford it right now so I have been looking to create it on my level of expertise ( like zero) The template is at Clubexpress.com. I also enjoy the sailnet forum using the vbulletin format.
    So the Weebly buffet of widgets for now-----
    I have been researching on my own-Weebly does not support your vbulletin (yet-I made the suggestion) and I need simple stupid intuitive tools (website building) to just get going for now.
    Thank you again, I will return once I have more skills-I will master this stuff! At 50 yrs old I just had to reinvent myself because my love of indoor plumbing and electricity so I need to stay focused on that and slowly learn all about websites and building them.
    High Five and have a great day!

    Very good point. Still goes to show that you need to have a usergroup somewhere. I run a script on one VB site to promote members to a special usergroup from a csv file (like a mailing list).

    Same here. I have my public forums, a set of private forums for the students in my music school to use and a set of subscription based forums that members need to pay to get into for a set time to get music lessons from. I control the access levels personally.

    Then the user can request,apply, etc to get the password. In our forum the member needs to be a verified cellphone dealer and can be verified in a number of ways.
    Doesn't sound like any less work that putting them in a usergroup one by one. And when the password is breached you gotta do it all over again.

    "The story"
    I have 800 Avon reps in my personal Avon business. I also train and advise hundreds of others OUTside my personal business.

    So my questions-
    1-I have set up a public site site on Weebly "Pro" and would like to add vbulletin for any public topics Avon reps need help with. Yes, they would need to register in order to participate. This would allow lots of topics and organization. I am on some forums that use vbulletin and think you have a great set up.

    2-I need a password protected private website for just my reps- and a private Forum for THEIR needs


    If Weebly does not cut it, what other drop and drag website builder would allow me to use/buy the vbulletin software for the forum? I want to build my business, not build websites, so simple stupid works for me.

    Thanks- I appreciate your help/advice!

    I would first suggest a good host, VB is not a drag and drop software, but it is fairly easy to navigate.
    For a forum of your nature and requirements, I would suggest the following:
    Create one site/forum being a public access, then create a forum that password protected allowing access to only the users you want in.
    Structured like this
    Vbulletin
    >>>Forum A public
    >>>Forum B public
    >>>Forum C public
    >>>>>Forum D Private password protected.

    The password protected forum works well, we use it on our forum for our cellphone dealers to discuss things that are not public.
